Just as the United States began reopening following COVID-19 restrictions, the death of George Floyd rapidly changed the conversation and protests erupted around the country (and with international solidarity). Join Dave Pounder, Gate 15’s Director for Threat and Risk Analysis, Jennifer Lyn Walker, Director for Cyber Services, Jorhena Thomas, Senior Risk Consultant, and Andy Jabbour, Gate 15’s Managing Director, as they discuss this rapidly changing and dynamic environment.
In this episode Andy, Dave and Jen discuss topics including Ramadan and faith-based threats and preparedness, the coronavirus “infodemic,” as well as the impacts of the re-opening / re-entry of businesses across around the world. Then the team wraps things up with some thoughts on hurricanes and National Hurricane Preparedness Week.
Hear our team discuss why often, many organizations don’t do a great job of completing a deliberate after-action review process or developing effective after-action reports (AARs) after incidents, from small-scale events to significant threats, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic. The webinar covers topics such as how to get started on an AAR process by identifying the needed resources and getting those resources to conduct the necessary analysis in order to draft an After-Action Report and Improvement Plan. Andy also shares some thoughts on the importance of preparedness and imagination when working towards personal, organizational and national resilience.

The 4th episode of the Gate 15 Podcast is now available! There is a lot of information “out there” related to the COVID-19 pandemic – some of which is true and useful… Aside from initial reactions, the team looks ahead to what’s next as this pandemic continues and how do we start preparing to handle other incidents – from spring flooding and an upcoming hurricane season to potential hostile events – in a COVID world.
With multiple COVID-19 updates per day from myriad sources, scammers are predictably using every conceivable (and even inconceivable) lure to hide their cyber attacks in plain sight.
As coronavirus has shown, the impacts of a pandemic can wreak havoc worldwide, quickly and severely. At some point, things will start to get back to “normal,” and there will be a big push to catch up and make up for lost time. While it would be easy for many to get through this pandemic and reassure ourselves, “this happens every hundred years,” and to then try to resume “normal” routines and operations, focusing on the next requirement and not the past – that would be a huge mistake, and an even more huge missed opportunity.
